We have owned our home since July 30 and I feel really comfortable with my pool. The liner was replaced two weeks before closing so the water is fairly fresh. I have found that any acid, baking soda etc. I add less than the calculator recommends since smaller amounts of these things always hit my goal.
Chlorine is another story! This pool has always had a huge appetite and even with no swimmers and cooler weather it doesn't seem to be any less. I seem to have to add a gallon a day or more to keep my level at 7.
I was coming and testing the water before closing and the PB always had at least five pucks in the chlorinator at a time and the level was always 1-2.
My pool sits in full sun from around 9 am until sundown so I know it will take more but I see folks on here with similar size pools use a lot less than I do. Is this normal?
My CYA is at 40 because I know someone is going to ask
